What is an Online Talent Assessment Software?

An online Talent Assessment Software is a standardized tool to assess and calibrate the employability of a candidate based on technical/domain skills, psychometry, and culture-fit of the candidates. Online Talent Assessment Software provides an automated way for HR professionals to simplify and fasten the recruitment process.

All good, but anything that an organization invests in, be it supplies, workspace, personnel, software need to reap benefits for the organization i.e., prove a sizable ROI. In this article, we are sharing how organizations have benefited and continue to benefit from a Talent Assessment Software.

Benefits of an Online Talent Assessment Software

Benefit #1: Shorter Time-to-hire

It is one of the most important metrics in the recruitment process. Time-to-hire is the time taken to fill an open job position. It includes the time at which the job post is created to the time the new hire is onboarded to fill the position.

How does a Talent Assessment Software shortens the time-to-hire?

  • Declutters the whole of the recruitment process, asks only job-specific questions to assess the key attributes and skills required for the job, thereby greatly saving the time and effort of the recruiters and hiring managers
  • Weeds out unqualified candidates
  • Instant test reports result in reduced time-to-hire
  • Seamlessly integrate with the ATS and HR Management software of the organization 

Benefit #2: Lower Cost-per-hire

Cost-per-hire is the total amount of money invested to recruit a new employee. The costs for hiring a new employee include the investment in job sourcing, ATS, pre-employment software, the salary of recruiters.

The cost-per-hire increases if the organization fills the position with a bad hire.

How a Talent Assessment Software lowers the cost-per-hire?

  • Eliminates conventional paper-pen assessments, thereby reducing the costs of office supplies
  • Remote AI enabled assessments reduces the travel expenses of recruiters during campus recruitments.
  • Eliminates the chances of bad-hire by means of 360° assessment of the candidates.

Benefit #3: Better quality-of-hire

Quality-of-hire is the metric to gauge the technical knowledge/competency and learnability of a candidate. It is a function of the employee’s performance on the job over a period of time.

How a Talent Assessment Software brings in a better quality-of-hire?

  • Remote Assessments eliminate the necessity to drive down to the organization’s location and hence bring in more quality candidates into the recruiter’s
  • Assesses both technical and culture-fit of the candidates
  • Assessment test reports generate a detailed SWOT analysis to map the competencies of the candidates

Benefit #4: Higher Success-of-hire

Success-of-hire is the most important metric of all. Success-of-hire is the measure of a quality hire who not just has an impressive resume but, upon hiring, stays at an organization for more than 18 months and proves to be a HiPo – High performing employee (top 30 %tile) over a period of time.
